Hey guys im thinking of upgrading as I love my 750 spirit but would like a bit more overtaking power as we need it in Tassie. I am torn between a couple of options. A 2007 VTX1300 with 2500km for 10k or going radical and changing to a brand new CTX1300 for 16k. I love the shadow handling but the ctx is awsome as well so any recommendations would be appreciated
Hi. I started with a VT400 then upgraded to a VT750 which was great but like you I wanted more grunt. I now ride a VTX1300 and couldn't be happier, it makes overtaking a breeze and I even tow a small camper with the greatest of ease. Hope this helps. Cheers: Macca..

Thanks Macca, i am yet to test ride the vtx1300 but hearing your comments helps. I have a 2008 750 which is fuel injected so im not sure how the carbie 1300 will go in cold Tassie. I am in Hawksbury Heights NSW st the moment but there are none for sale close by.The one i found is in Tassie which is handy so Thurday will be the day.

Well Shadow riders I have had the test rides and chosen the CTX1300 as my new ride so hopefully I pick it up from Melbourne next Saturday. I sold the Shadow to a dealer who originally sold it to me so I hope it goes to a good home. Thanks for this great forum and stay upright guys.
